Oct. 23, 2012 — Kentucky State Police are investigating a missing and endangered juvenile who apparently escaped while being transported to Morehead for confinement.
Cheyenne Vires, 16, was being transported last Friday by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services to the Morehead Youth Development Center.
The vehicle was traveling east on I-64, in Shelby County at mile marker 32 where Vires allegedly kicked out a window and threatened to jump from the moving vehicle.
The driver slowed the vehicle and Vires exited the vehicle through the broken window and fled on foot.
She fled westbound on I-64 and attempted entry into a red or maroon full-sized truck. It is unknown if the juvenile gained entry or was picked up by the driver in the truck.
There was an extensive search of the area but Vires was not located.
KSP Frankfort Post was assisted by KSP Commercial Vehicle Enforcement, Shelbyville Police Department, Simpsonville Police Department and the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. The investigation is continuing by the KSP Frankfort Post.
Vires is a white female with medium length brown hair and gray/green eyes. She has a scar on the right side of her mouth. She was last seen wearing red/burgundy sweater, white tee shirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes.
Anyone with information about her is asked to contact the KSP Frankfort Post at 502-227-2221 or 1-800-222-5555.
